From my kitchen to yours – Shortbread Sugar Cookies!

6 Dec

I guess you wonder what I have been doing over the weekend. It was cold outside and a good weekend to do some baking. The house was smelling of cookies baking in the oven. So pull up a chair and have a cookie with me. Try making some yourself and see what you think!

Shortbread Sugar Cookie recipe:

  • 2/3 cup Crisco (Crisco in the can or you can use the sticks)
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups sifted flour (all purpose flour)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Colored sugar of your choice

Blend Crisco, sugar, eggs, milk and vanilla. Add combined dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Roll 1/8 inch thick on lightly floured board and cut with cookie cutter.

Bake at 375 degrees on ungreased cookie sheets for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly brown. Remove from pan immediately and sprinkle with sugar if desired. If you want to decorate with colored sugar then sprinkle it on before baking.

Note: The cookies are not very sweet.
